this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a lot of looking at those people as well. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people, but

heard about carlos danger, i thought, this is crazy. >> stephanie: you thought, oh that's clever. >> well, and the dirty -- the website that's doing all of this, i remembered right away that, like, back when ben quayle, dan quayle's son was running for congress his primary opponent accused him of being involved in this scandalous website called the dirty, so maybe ben quayle is behind this.

sit on the subway and be exposed to every homeless person that has ever exposed themselves on the subway. if we all have to see his junk on the internet that's the least he could do. >> stephanie: yeah, you said perhaps photography classes would be more his speed. >> yeah, i have not been a big anthony weiner fan. folks that know me know i have had friends that have worked for him, and he was a viciously cruel boss -- >> wow. >> stephanie: it's so funny -- i think i only passed him once in a green room or something, and he just seemed like a jerk. he justing didn't -- he did not seem friendly. >> not the warmest person. >> he was an undistinguished legislator who never really did much in terms of writing bills. he did good on tv.
6:12 am
he had no friends in congress and he was an ass to his staff. >> stephanie: people keep bringing up clinton, and i think there's a big difference here. those of us on the left he loved his fire, his positions on things, but you are right he didn't accomplish much as a legislator, so when you go oh he was a great congressman, i think you are right. >> and i don't think the new york mayor's office is there to rehabilitate one's self. i think chris quinn is going to be a great mayor, and i would rather make history with the first woman and first lesbian mayor of the nation's largest city than the first mayor of new york who's penis i have seen. >> at least we haven't seen ed koch's penis. >> how am i doing?

[ laughter ] >> a lot better if you put that away. >> stephanie: i could have done would rudy giuliani's moralizing on this, however. >> yeah, at least he waited until he was in there to start screwing around. >> stephanie: right. >> yeah, anthony weiner he -- he had to run for mayor, because, a, if he won, oh he's mayor, but b, if he came in second, he came in second. if he has run for controller like eliot spitzer, and then lost controller, he would never get to run for anything again. this is all of the calculus that i was doing before. he was still doing this stuff before he resigned from congress. he is like hey, did you see the pictures that caused me to resign from congress?

which one was your favorite? >> stephanie: i know. he really needs some help. >> and the nerve. i have the same bathroom carpet as the guy. i'm going to get that replaced. >> stephanie: yeah, you tweeted it's time to go shopping. a was the most horrifying thing about the photo. >> yeah. >> stephanie: you alsolate as to how many write-in votes carlos danger gets. >> oh fingers crossed that he comes in second. in the primaries there in new york, if you don't -- if somebody doesn't get 40%, then they have a run off. so hopefully chris quinn can pass that 40% mark because if not, i think the ads that carlos danger's team is putting together, they are going to look a little bit like bond commercials, and i think he will be a tough challenger.
6:15 am
>> stephanie: yeah. chris uttered something, you said poor huma. what do you think? >> stephanie: i like huma. first of all whenever these things happen, i try not to inject myself into the marriages, because who knows what they are actually talking about behind closed doors. when gary hart and his wife has their issues i think i read somewhere years later that they had an open marriage. of course he couldn't say that back in 1984. but it's none of my business. so why she is sticking around, i don't know. but i will say once you have been embarrassed once by a behavior, unless she has a embarrassment fetish -- >> stephanie: yeah jacki said
6:16 am
yesterday, it drives her crazy that people call her brave. >> yeah, i think you can forgive somebody for bad behavior but when you find out it continued for months afterwards, that's -- and that you are basically risking to embarrass that person the same way again, i think that's a bridge too far. >> stephanie: yeah, fox news viewers have a median age of 65 plus. >> we can't bust heads like we used to. >> and they lean very heavily on the plus side. >> stephanie: yeah interesting. another airplane landing mishap. remember your underpaid flight attendants are also first responders. >> that's right. they work their tails off, and are not compensated like they should be -- and remember when sully landed the plane on the

one ridiculous investigation after another that ended up in an investigation in his private life. it was a witch hunt. and at the time i felt some sympathy, because i felt like most of us wouldn't want to answer really personal questions about our private life, and might lie about it -- honestly i think most americans thought that way that he should not be impeached -- >> caller: the only thing i'm saying is we should give anthony weiner the same benefit as we gave bill clinton. >> stephanie: and we're saying that too. it's up to the people in new york. and we gave all of the same jokes about clinton, sex scandals can be funny to some degree, but there are issues -- you know -- i -- i have found with this, steph, and i don't know if you have either. we said this yesterday, it isn't

that i know there is a lot of comedy in this whole story, but for a serious moment if we held all of our politicians to this high moral standard that we seem to want to hold anthony weiner too, we wouldn't have had a president kennedy or fdr -- >> stephanie: yeah, i just had this conversation with a friend yesterday. this is an interesting part of this. not only was the press different then. they didn't report on politicians private lives. they knew what was happening with kennedy et cetera. but you are absolutely right. is it technology? it seems like these politicians are doing it to themselves now. >> caller: yeah. >> stephanie: i don't know what part is what. do you? >> caller: i think politics come with ego and power, and a sense that you can get away with anything, and i think that's part of the job, a we see it
6:54 am
over and over and over again with this people. you said you voted for clinton as president. as a new yorker i would vote for weiner because he is a strong liberal progressive and if his wife can forgive him, then i can. >> stephanie: yeah and it is up to voters like you in new york. you are right. >> the only thing that holds me back from thinking like that is the potential for being blackmailed. if he is desperate to keep a secret like that, then there's the potential for blackmail there. >> caller: yeah, and we knew that back -- same thing with kennedy, and hoover. >> stephanie: and maybe the other thing -- people in new york have a pretty low bar in my opinion morally with rudy giuliani. you go which is worse? his wife had to hear about the divorce from his press conference. he didn't tell her. so you look at huma and go well
6:55 am
for whatever reasons her choices are her choices and she is there with them. i lived in new york then nick, and i remember donna appearing on television a couple of hours later in tears because she didn't know. >> caller: exactly. >> by the way we're getting a divorce. >> stephanie: yeah seriously, and trying to bring his mystery into the mansion. it was just gross. the whole thing, right? >> caller: and i also think there's an addictive piece to this. and i do believe him when he says it's a process to stop that behavior. i don't think most people can just turn it off, so it doesn't really surprise me that it continued after he got thrown out of congress and i feel bad for that, but -- >> stephanie: honestly nick on a human level too i hope he is getting real help now for his
6:56 am
wife's sake and his baby -- >> caller: exactly. you see that picture of the family and they look so beautiful and happy, and, you know i mean -- come on we all have our little things in closets that we are not proud of, and if we're lucky we never get found out. >> stephanie: nick you sound like a man with a secret. would you like to purge?

6:57 am
was about rudy giuliani not bill clinton. and now the "new york times" gave him an absolute pass on it. and now they are jumping all over this guy. and this guy hasn't touched number, and he is not the mayor, and if you don't like him, don't vote for him. >> stephanie: and his best friend, that goes to judgment right? he literally let him use the tax-payer funded apartment that was supposed to be for 9/11 workers for him to cheat on his mystery with the other mystery or whatever. >> caller: uh-huh. that's what lawrence o'donnell said. it's just ridiculous how they are jumping on weiner. if people don't want to vote for them. people in new york shouldn't vote for them but they probably will. >> stephanie: you said jump on

zimmerman [ inaudible ]. >> stephanie: exactly. >> caller: but my other point is i think he tried probably like a microcosm of what the republicans are trying to do to this country. because they are going to try to privatize everything and sell it off to the lowest bidder or highest bidder whichever. and it is just disgusting. that they are trying to take away the post office, which, by the way is part of the constitution. >> stephanie: yeah. thank you honey appreciate. let's go to peggy in l.a. welcome. >> caller: hi, i kind of differentiate between spitzer and weiner in that -- okay jwhat weiner did was really not that bad when you look at people going to nude beaches, and people are now playing all of these computer games and so

8:15 am
deal with that. and i don't like them having their time split between a strong personal problem. >> stephanie: right. right. >> caller: and doing their job. >> stephanie: and i have to say, i have a personal take on that because i know eliot spitzer obviously i have worked with him here at current, and i could be wrong, but i got the same sense. when i talked to him personally, he seemed to have a sense of humor and humility about it and talked about his wife in a way that i found authentic. and i think you are right. i think it is different that he is past it. i think you are right, i think he is in the middle of a pretty serious problem that he needs help with. >> caller: yeah, and what he did in and of itself is not too different than going to a nude beach. it freaks me out, but -- >> stephanie: i think it was more than that. >> caller: but i think he doesn't have control of it. that's the point.
